EVALUATION OF THE DIFFERENCES IN CHARACTERIZATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF THE ROCK MASS QUALITY (2015)
<p>In the construction of a tunnel, the characterization of the rock mass is performed in three different steps, in the pre-investigations, in the engineering geological forecast and in the tunnel mapping during construction. There has in previous work been ...
This paper questions the application of rock mass classification systems in engineering geology problems.
This paper presents the view that rock mass classification systems are not enough for final design, from experience with major tunnels and cavern projects in the Sydney region.
The paper describes the history of the Q-system that was introduced in 1974, and its later development. The individual parameters are analysed, and their relevance for the natural geological features they seek to simulate, is discussed. It is concluded that ...
